SAD opposes farm Bills, issues whip

New Delhi, September 16

The Shiromani Akali Dal today decided to oppose the three farm Bills in Parliament and issued a three-line whip to its MPs.

Party president Sukhbir Badal asked his parliamentary colleagues to oppose these Bills that are to replace The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Ordinance, The Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Ordinance, and The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Ordinance.

Naresh Gujral, party Chief Whip in the Rajya Sabha, today issued the notice. The party has three MPs in the House, including Gujral, Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa and Balwinder Singh Bhunder.

The SAD, an ally of the BJP, is a member of the governing coalition at the Centre. It remains to be seen whether it will vote in case a division is sought by the Opposition on any of the Bills. — TNS

Ally's Concerns being addressed: JP Nadda

A day after Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Badal told the Lok Sabha that his party was "not consulted" over the ordinances, BJP president JP Nadda on Wednesday said they were talking to their Punjab ally to "address its concerns". Asserting that the MSP would stay, Nadda said decisions had been taken after consultations.
